Waimana Gorge closure to remain for two weeks


The Waimana Gorge will be closed to traffic for another two weeks.

The contractor clearing a large slip in the gorge has made good progress, but the Transport Agency says the wet weather has caused some delays.

The slip came down between Stanley Road and Fraser Road on the 4th of July following heavy rain.

Until State Highway 2 through the gorge re-opens traffic is being diverted through Whakatane, Ohope and Wainui Road.
